Manages a Glacier Vault Lock. You can refer to the Glacier Developer Guide for a full explanation of the Glacier Vault Lock functionality.

» Example Usage

» Testing Glacier Vault Lock Policy

resource "aws_glacier_vault" "example" {
  name = "example"

data "aws_iam_policy_document" "example" {
  statement {
    actions   = ["glacier:DeleteArchive"]
    effect    = "Deny"
    resources = ["${aws_glacier_vault.example.arn}"]

    condition {
      test     = "NumericLessThanEquals"
      variable = "glacier:ArchiveAgeinDays"
      values   = ["365"]

resource "aws_glacier_vault_lock" "example" {
  complete_lock = false
  policy        = "${data.aws_iam_policy_document.example.json}"
  vault_name    = "${aws_glacier_vault.example.name}"

» Permanently Applying Glacier Vault Lock Policy

resource "aws_glacier_vault_lock" "example" {
  complete_lock = true
  policy        = "${data.aws_iam_policy_document.example.json}"
  vault_name    = "${aws_glacier_vault.example.name}"

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • complete_lock - (Required) Boolean whether to permanently apply this Glacier Lock Policy. Once completed, this cannot be undone. If set to false, the Glacier Lock Policy remains in a testing mode for 24 hours. After that time, the Glacier Lock Policy is automatically removed by Glacier and the Terraform resource will show as needing recreation. Changing this from false to true will show as resource recreation, which is expected. Changing this from true to false is not possible unless the Glacier Vault is recreated at the same time.
  • policy - (Required) JSON string containing the IAM policy to apply as the Glacier Vault Lock policy.
  • vault_name - (Required) The name of the Glacier Vault.
  • ignore_deletion_error - (Optional) Allow Terraform to ignore the error returned when attempting to delete the Glacier Lock Policy. This can be used to delete or recreate the Glacier Vault via Terraform, for example, if the Glacier Vault Lock policy permits that action. This should only be used in conjunction with complete_lock being set to true.

» Attributes Reference

In addition to all arguments above, the following attributes are exported:

  • id - Glacier Vault name.

» Import

Glacier Vault Locks can be imported using the Glacier Vault name, e.g.

$ terraform import aws_glacier_vault_lock.example example-vault
